More Dating Advice for the Young, Single, Black and Female

(20) Comments | Posted November 16, 2011 | 8:14 PM

Hey Girl,

In case you were just minding your own business acting like a lady and thinking like a man, Tyrese has some new advice for all the independent single (black) ladies.

Excerpt via New Black Woman:

I want to say to all the women out there, especially black women in particular, y'all are on this independent kick. "I don't need no man, I'm independent." I want y'all to know the difference. There is a very big difference. Independence in the eyes of a man is when we say we want an independent woman; we don't want a woman that's [depending on] her sexy and nice body to help her get through life. You don't wanna work, you don't want to go to college or school, you're not inspired to do anything on any level to try and help further yourself on any level. You just want to be sexy and free-load....nobody wants that as a man.

Then some women are so on this independent kick they end up alone. You're going to independent your way into loneliness. You go off and buy all the little poodles you want. "At least my dog is happy to see me when I get home everyday." That dog or "rabbit" will never be able to replace what a real man can do for you. So stay independent, get your own, but nobody wants to be alone period. I know it's a lot of men out here that are playing on both sides of the fence, it's confusing, and it's a lot of homosexuality going on out here. I get it, it's a lot of frustration that women have. [But] there's a lot of man's man still left; We're out here, we're waiting, we're wanting, we desire you just like you desire us. Just don't give up on us..."Stay." That's my 'Open Invitation'. Give [us] a shot at your heart.

Please don't independent your way into loneliness.

When Professor Marshall Kane, played by Michael K. Williams, assigns study partners for the semester and the group's first project, a terrarium, pitch perfect infighting within the study group ensues. It's one of Community's staples and the actors do it well. This week's A story was much funnier than last...

Saving the Block From Monsters Near and Far

Attack the Block is a movie about neighborhood pride, a sneaky social message of class and tribe, and alien invasions. The film is a mix of Misfits (without the sex and superpowers) meets Aliens and Predator (without the trail of dead scientist and military experts). It's like watching the kids...
